Chaibasa, March 26: The only water tank at the Chaibasa bus stand appears to be a mere showcase.
There is no water supply and lack of maintenance of the tank as a result of which the tank is in the state of ruin.
Around 5000 passengers arrive at Chaibasa bus stand and a total of 110 buses operate from here everyday.
Non- availability of drinking water is causing huge problem particularly for poor passengers who remain thirsty. It is not possible for every passenger to purchase mineral water.
The passengers who approaches the Hotel owners and vendors for drinking water they refuse to give them drinking water saying that it is not an inn.
As the scorching heat is increasing day by day, it is high time the administration and the municipality showed sensitivity to the people and make necessary arrangement for drinking water facility at the bus stop.
